    The Italian press and tv have gone full retard over the Brexit vote. They now know for sure the days of the EU are numbered and its only a matter of time.
    What they aren't telling the people and im sure the Portuguese, Greek, Irish, and Spanish governments aren't mentioning is that as the UK begins to withdraw its live giving monthly ££££££ to the ever hungry EU as a direct consequence the EU is going to install more austerity on the already hard hit countries left in this miasma to make up for the missing money.
    When this happens then the people in these countries will want a referendum and opt out too. The French and German peoples will probably want a referendum too due to the fact that they cant afford to bail out the southern European economies anymore.......and not to mention the fact that Ukraine wanted in as well, and Christ knows how much loot they wanted to bring their country back from the stone age.

    I must admit its all quite entertaining watching these fuckers squirm, its obvious they weren't expecting this. Seems like theres some life left in the old British bulldog.

    Are we seeing the first fruit of 'the worse the better' outlook?

    "I honestly just about shit my Depends after I heard the news. And not even that could have possibly spoiled the mood, since the thought of laughing in the face of a bag of shit that tried to chap my ass right before chucking it into the dumpster just reminded me that tomorrow I will have the great pleasure of doing the exact same thing when I get to see that old bag of shit Eleanor Clift."

    Brexit won the battle. But now we've lost the war.[\URL]

    “without its Jews, Britain would not be Britain,”

    When Jonathan Swift wanted to mock the immeasurable superficiality of British politics, he imagined it as a contest between the Big–Endians and the Little-Endians. That is, between those who believed fervently that the only way to open a boiled egg is at the pointier end; and those certain that the only proper way to attack it was from the larger, more rounded end.

    But that was in the 1720s and Swift was joking. Not in his most extravagantly cynical fantasies, I dare venture, could our greatest satirist have conceived that 300 years on a British prime minister would be chosen on the basis of the following question: ‘Do you think that it was injudicious and horrid and career-ending of female candidate B to mention in an interview that she had kids, knowing that female candidate A did not?’ And that apparently the only reasonable answer would be: ‘Yes!’

    I followed the debate (mainly via Twitter) from a villa in Sicily. Being abroad can give you a perspective sometimes lacking when you’re too close to the fray. And what I saw, I must say, left me as planet-struck as by anything I have ever witnessed in the decades I have spent spectating on the festering roach-pit that is Westminster.

    Most especially what disgusted me was the behaviour of the commentarati: the people (you had just one job, FFS) charged with holding our political class to account. Not all of them (props to Louise Mensch and a handful of others); just most of them, including more than a few who’d taken the right side on the Brexit. I watched, amazed, as they piled in with their tuppenny ha’pennies’ worth on this most pressing of issues. ‘Oh definitely she meant it. Listen to the audio!’ ‘What? She’s trying to defend herself? How very dare she?’ ‘Kill the witch! Burn her!’ etc.

    ‘Get a grip!’ I wanted to say to these pontificating twonks, some of whose opinions I had previously trusted. ‘Do you not think maybe there are more pressing criteria to be judging Britain’s future leadership on? Like: the composition of the next cabinet; how likely they are to effect the full Brexit voted for by nearly 17,500,000 people; how alive they are to the underlying causes of that massive grassroots statement of discontent with the metropolitan elite’s status quo?’

    But, apparently that wasn’t the sophisticated view. No: we had had our peasants’ revolt; we’d got as far as London; we’d made our point. Now, it was about time the natural order was restored, with the ringleaders of that suddenly unfashionable cause — Gove, Leadsom, the firebrand Nigel ‘John Ball’ Farage — being put to death, as is proper on these occasions, and life going much as before.
    Revolutions are all very well: but God, you don’t want to rock the boat do you? This is my take-home message of the events of the last few weeks. We Brexiteers won the battle that no one expected us to win. But boy, did we just lose the war.

    Sure our new insect overlord Theresa May has declared that Brexit means Brexit. But that in turn could mean anything. Associate membership (a bastard non-status that one of the few commentators who really understands the EU, Mary Ellen Synon, was warning the Bruges Group several months before the referendum was precisely the fudge we should most dread and fear)? Entry into a European Economic Area and acceptance of free movement of peoples, putting us on terms even less favourable than tiny Switzerland’s? Desperate, panicked acceptance of whatever rancid sops the EU deigns to toss us in return for access to that matchlessly wondrous entity the Single Market?

    Imagine how we’ll feel when, belatedly, we discover that ‘access to the Single Market’ was never some binary choice between trade or no trade, but just another Remain marketing con which has been accepted unanimously as a good thing because no one did their homework.

    This will happen a lot post this extraordinary coup by the losing Remain faction. We’re now back pretty much where we were before the EU referendum started — in the hands of an administration which will do all it possibly can to frustrate everything Brexiteers were hoping to achieve. Theresa May will be like continuation Cameron, who in turn was continuation Heath: an endless series of disappointments and missed opportunities.

    I don’t want to sound like a Remainiac: please, let me never become that twisted or bitter. But I have to admit I now have a pretty excellent idea how they feel. Partly, I’m numb with shock. Yes, of course, I knew that the establishment would fight hard to protect its self-interest and we got a taste of it with Project Fear and Project Lie. But its viciousness and determination during the referendum campaign was as nothing to its behaviour once it had theoretically ‘lost’.

    What I feel most, though, is sadness. For a lot of us Brexiteers, leaving the EU was just the beginning of a people’s revolution against that remote, entrenched, largely unaccountable elite. Not a war on ‘capitalism’, as the left so wilfully misrepresents it, but definitely an assault on cronyism, on ‘too big to fail’, on central-bank manipulation, on the misuse of immigration to create growth at the expense of GDP per capita and quality of life, on the screwing over of the many by the few. Now a once-in-a-generation opportunity has been snatched from the grasp of us amateurs by professionals so ruthless we’re like Cub Scouts who’ve just met the SS Leibstandarte.

    NEIN TO PLAYING NICE Huge majority of Germans would like to see Brits suffer when Brexit negotiations start next month, according to new pollIN TO PLAYING NICE Huge majority of Germans would like to see Brits suffer when Brexit negotiations start next month, according to new poll
    Massive 88% are urging Angela Merkel to take tough line with Theresa May and only 10% hope to reach compromise

    A HUGE majority of Germans would like to see Britain suffer when the Brexit negotiations start next, according to a new poll.

    A massive 88% are urging Angela Merkel to take a tough line with Theresa May and only 10% are hoping to reach a compromise, independent research shows.

    The cocky Germans think they will get away with it by saying ‘nein’ to Britain because they don’t fear any negative consequences for Germany after we quit the EU.

    Last year, in the aftermath of the referendum, about a third of Germans were worried that their economy – particularly their powerful car industry- would be hit by loss of exports to the British market.

    But these fears appeared to have declined in the wake of Mrs May triggering Article 50 and beginning Brexit. (...)

    And here I thought Germans saw themselves as no longer worthy of feeling "imperial." I suppose that since the EU was established via treaty it is somehow different.

    Who would have thought that the world would change to the point where I would be sympathetic to the limeys and anti-kraut?

    Now, if ever, would be the most suitable time for the Germans to remember that they made themselves the punching bag of geopolitics, and can no longer command any fear, especially not from a people they've undeservedly fellated as their so-called "democratic liberators" for decades... It's about as absurd a notion as liberal Democrats pretending to be neo-Cold Warriors.
